The news comes after she split with 'husband' Nasser.

It was a very emotional month for Married At First Sight's Gabrielle Bartlett and Nasser Sultan with the pair choosing to leave the experiment on Sunday night's episode. But Gabrielle seems to have formed a close relationship with another groom from the show and probably the last person you'd expect – Sean who was 'married' to Jo. 

Speaking with TV Week, Gab said she's very good friends with Sean now:

"Sean from Adelaide - he's one person that I've become very firm friends with. He's a great bloke."

"This is a very intense emotional journey that you go on together. Nobody else can really understand until you've been there and done it. So it really does fast-track friendships to being quite close." 

Married At First Sight Jo SeanAfter her breakup with Nasser was aired on TV on Sunday, Gab took to Instagram to reveal she'd lost 18kg since her time on the show. Apparently, the emotional impact, as well as some health complications, led to the weight loss.

She told the magazine:

"With my emotional journey on the show, along with health issues towards the end of filming that I needed treatment for, my weight just dropped."

"I slimmed down a lot during and after the experiment was filming. However, I'm feeling a lot better now and letting my body do what it needs to do to stay strong and healthy – it is what it is for now!"

It is reported that River was diagnosed with Toxic Shock Syndrome in early February. It is believed that the condition had a major role in her significant weight loss.

The update comes shortly after Nasser was spotted getting cosy with a new woman over the weekend at a Sydney bar.
